the blanks there. it's my expert medical opinion that the president has got a rockin' bod with a perfect amount of cushion for the pushing and if given the chance, i would. are there any questions? what is so objectionable that it's worth holding the entire government hostage? >> negotiating with president trump is like negotiating with jell-o. >> we look petty. we care more about party flag than the american flag. >> i urge my colleagues here in the house and the senate to make sure we fund this government. >> this is what democracy looks like! woo, woo! >> i was a me too. i am aware of all the women who are still in silence! >> i want my girls to feel empowered. >> this year was about directing that voice to action and that action being what will happen later this year -- the elections.
>> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good morning to you. 7:00 is the time. glad you're up early. start of day two of the government shutdown. no sign that lawmakers are any closer to reaching a deal here. >> those lawmakers are still getting paid despite the government shutdown but same cannot be said for the hundreds of thousands of government workers including military personnel who do not know when they will see their next paycheck. >> both houses are back in session in a few hours and a new deal on the table but it looks like it has strong republican support ahead of tomorrow morning's vote. the question is the democrats and whether they are on board. >> in any's abby phillips is live at the white house but we start with lauryn hill. lauren, what about the hill that is coming up for a vote and what
is the chance of passing? >> reporter: both sides are still very dug in on capitol hill this morning and no one appears ready to blink. majority leader mitch mcconnell still plans to bring a three-week stopgap measure to the floor and perhaps at 1:00 a.m. on monday morning. he hopes the democrats will feel the pressure of the shutdown and vote to pass it. meanwhile, democrats are saying that they still want fuller immigration negotiations. here is what senator chuck schumer had to say about where the negotiations stand at this point. >> do you know what number cr this is? this is going on six months. they have had a three months cr and one month cr and two-week cr. if we keep kicking the can down the table, our soldiers will be hurt, our children will be hurt, our disaster recipients will be hurt. everyone will be hurt. if this was the first time they used this cr approach, it would be reasonable.
>> reporter: a bipartisan group of lawmakers have already started trying to negotiate. about 20 members met for several hours yesterday in senator susan collins office and lindsey graham said if we don't get it together soon the american people are going to blame both sides of the aisle. here is what he had to say yesterday. >> i think we look petty, we look that we care more about the party flag than the american flag. i don't know what to tell people. all i can tell them is that there are a lot of men and women in mountain tops and jungles working really hard to keep us safe that are being denied resources because of the sqest sequestration and c,s. people are working.
teachers, people in the military, their lives are going to come undone in a matter of weeks, not months, and we're sitting up here blaming each other. >> reporter: we are in the second day of the government shutdown but we should remember that lawmakers are feeling the pressure because tomorrow is monday and hundreds of thousands of government workers may be furloughed and won't be able to report to work and lawmakers say the longer this goes on, the more pain the country will feel. >> lauren fox, we apprecate it. thank you so much. cnn's abby phillips is live for us from the white house right now. she is talking there about how many people are going to be affected. who is in charge of this shutdown? >> reporter: well, this morning, the white house was spinning their wheels a little bit here working on a different part of the shutdown, which is the messaging about it. there is not a whole lot that we have heard in terms of what the president is doing to help negotiate an end to this but white house aides have spent the last couple of days talking about who is to blame and
pointing the finger pretty squarely at democrats. now the white house released a couple of photos yesterday of the president working from the west wing and, you know, these photos really illustrate the president making a couple of phone calls. we know he talked to mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, and he also talked to paul ryan, but he has not talked to chuck schumer. what he did do, on the other hand, is record a message for this gala he was supposed to attend in florida at his mar-a-lago resort and he talked to his supporters lamenting the shutdown in that he could not be down in florida with them. listen. >> i have to stay here in d.c., which are becoming, i think, pretty proficient at. we have to stay here for the purpose of shutdown. there should not be a shutdown did you there is and it's caused by the democrats but we will end up winning another victory. >> reporter: at the same time, we are also seeing some signs that the political arm of the
white house, the republican national committee is getting ready to really go on the offense on this government shutdown. they have released something of a very tough ad highlighting the crimes of illegal immigrants and i'm putting the blame for that issue on democrats. this ad, i have to say, is not going to be airing on television as far as we know, but the idea here is to give democrats a taste of what could be coming in some political races going down the line in 2018. take a listen. >> only thing that [ bleep ] is [ bleep ] too. >> translator: that is illegal immigrant that is charged with murdering two police officers. >> kill more of those mother [ bleep ]. >> reporter: it's pure illegal. president trump is right. build the wall and stop illegal immigration now. build the wall. democrats who stand in our way! will be complicit and donald trump will fix our borders and
keep our families safe. >> i'm donaldtrump and i approve this message. >> reporter: the white house will say that that ad -- republicans will say that that ad is intended to put the pressure on democrats to bring an end to the shutdown. either way on monday morning, folks will be waking up not knowing if they are going to be working or get a paycheck. office of management and budget director mick mulvaney talked about shutting down the government and we will see if he will open the government on monday morning. it's really not clear there is any work being done that will actually bring an end to this crisis. >> abby phillip, thank you for the update. let's bring in mark wayne mullen of oklahoma and david price of north carolina who is joing us joining us on the phone. let's start on the proposal floated in the senate. you're both in the house. i ask for your respective opinions on if the members of your party should support this.
this week-week continuing resolution for funding the government for a couple of weeks could include storm recovery funds and a fund for a chir children's insurance program and to the elements of immigration. congressman mullen, do you believe this has a chance to pass and would you push for its passage? >> look. everything in that bill, the democrats in both chambers are on record supporting. so, absolutely. we support anything that moves the ball down the road and in what has been happening here is party politics has got in the way of funding the government. with the chip program, with reauthorization placed on spending, these are the same numbers that obama was operating under. everything on this bill, not one thing on there should be controversial so this bill should be able to be pass inside both chambers easily. >> congressman price? >> i hope that's right.
the question is not the length of time so much. the question is does -- >> let's start there. would you support to pass this three-week continuation, this cr to then continue the conversations for immigration? while the government is open. >> reporter: i hope so. because the question is does it move us toward a long-term resolution of this budget issue? you know, we -- we could have done this six months ago. but here, for the fourth time, we are asked to kick it down the road and not have a budget in place the rest of the year, let alone not dealing with chip, not dealing with disaster relief, all of these things. fountain bill sets us up to deal with this long term, yes, that's what we should do. >> congressman, let me play something for you. let's go back the 2013 shutdown and i want to hear -- this is three guys -- no, let's play what we had up on the screen.
let's play the president, sound bite number two from 2013. this is what then private citizen trump said about president obama should be doing during the shutdown. >> and the president, in all fairness, he is the leader. he is the one who has to get nerve a room and get it done. they are not talking about boehner and reid. they are talking about president obama and what a disaster the administration was. he does have a lot of pressure to get this problem solved. he has got a big problem. >> congressman mullen, senator schumer called to a bipartisan meeting of house and senate leaders at the white house and the white house rejected that and there were no talks yesterday. why isn't the president doing what he suggested president obama do back in 2013, bring the parties in the oval office and sit in a room and work it out? >> the difference between '13 and today is obama was not talking to republicans. i was here in 2013. he wasn't even visiting with us. he kept calling on the congress to act but he wouldn't bring us into a room.
you saw president trump being the deal maker that he is asking chuck schumer and nancy pelosi and the leaders to come to the white house every time -- >> why wasn't a deal made? >> i tried to work with them and have them come to the white house. to make anything work two parties have to work on it. the it's a schumer shut down. it's there because they want to put immigration reform in front of the american people and the president has said these need to be two separate issues. even though he was entertaining the conversation, he wouldn't -- chuck schumer and nancy pelosi would not allow the president to have the conversation. >> congressman mullen, how does the schumer hash tag stick if schumer is saying let's meet to talk and the president is giving him the heisman arm? >> give me one thing on the funding bill the democrats have not supported in the past? give me one thing on this funding bill that is on record of bipartisan support. give me one thing on this thing,
victor, yourself would support. >> i'm not here -- my personal views are irrelevant here. >> they are because the american people are seeing exactly what schumer is doing. >> democrats have said it's not what is on this bill that they don't support it's the lack of a long-term spending plan and dealing with the other issues. >> we are working with budget caps right now but nancy pelosi and chuck schumer will not allow us to talk about anything because nancy pelosi says whatever we spend on military we have to spend on the private side too. military, right now, is the most important thing we can do because it's protecting our national security and we need to prop them up and make sure they have the resources they need to protect and defend this great nation. chuck schumer wants to talk about immigration and those are two separate issues. >> congressman price, come back into this conversation. schumer said on the floor yesterday he offered in this meeting with the president
funding for the board warder wa. we have the numbers that show 89% of democrats opposing funding for the border wall. so does he go in there with a backing of his party? will he have support as he goes in and criticizes the president saying it's like negotiating with jell-o? can the democrats make good on his word they will get support for funding the border wall in exchange for daca protections? >> well, there is going to have to be a package and some compromise. i can't believe what i just heard that we can't deal with domestic spending. that is what this is all about. military and diagram spending both threatened by this trump shutdown. and the president absolutely is not exerting leadership here. he is not pulling people together and it's hard to see how this comes together unless he is willing to invest in the process. first of all, trump made this immigration issue an emergency. he is the one who created the crisis for the dreamers by removing their protected status.
he says he wants a bipartisan solution to take care of that situation. he has one. he blows it up last week. and now the dreamers situation is super imposed on top of the budget situation. >> congressman price -- >> a real mess. >> let me ask you what -- put to you what the question was from congressman mullen. is there anything in this funding bill that you disagree with? why couldn't the negotiations for the immigration package of four issues the president pointed out continued with the government open on monday morning? there will be hundreds of thousands of workers who will go back to work without being paid and the negotiations still continue. could that have not happened while they were being paid and this government was open? >> listen. we know how to do this. if that is the point, yes. we know how to do this. we have bipartisan budget agreements. >> this could have continued
without a shutdown? >> we don't need to shut the government down. we need to -- we should have done this six months ago. we need to sit down and come up with a budget -- >> why didn't senate democrats vote to continue to fund the government if this could have happened with an open government? >> well, that was the condition under which we have been ready all along to deal. look. for the first three months of this physical year, republicans are preoccupied can their tax scam. they couldn't be bothered. look. we voted to give them 90 days to give us all 90 days to put this together. it's not like we started this yesterday. you could have told -- i could have told you in june, july, what we need to do. so we have gone along with this, but we just can't keep kicking the situation into the next month. >> congressman mullen. >> enough is enough. we need to get serious about writing a budget for the rest of
the year. it's affecting our military and affecting medical research and affecting disaster relief. so many important things. >> this is sound bite number three, guys. back to 2013 and this is then president obama. >> and we know that the longer this shutdown continues, the worse the effects will be. if you're serving in harm's way, we are going to make sure you have what you need to succeed in your missions. congress has passed, and i'm signing into law, legislation to make sure you get your paychecks on time. the longer this goes o the worse it will be. and it makes no sense. >> congressman, it's not so much important what the president said there but that he said something. that is october 1st, september 30th, october 1st respectively. the president has not said anything to the american people, to the camera, released a video, said something. beyond where is the leadership?
where is the leader? where is the president on all of this? why isn't he talking to a camera going out to speak to people during this shutdown? >> because when president trump is doing is actually talking to us and working through this problem. >> but he doesn't work for you! he works for the american people! where is the president? >> the only time he ever talked to the camera and not one time came to capitol hill and worked bus. his administration has been working with us until late in the night. i was with mick mulvaney late last night trying to work out situations and here is what i expect to happen. i think the president is going to give chuck schumer and mitch mcconnell until tomorrow to figure out how to get both sides working together and then he is going to call the nuclear option because that is what should happen. we should get away from the threshold if the democrats are not going to work bus because there is nothing controversial in this spending and just go the nuclear option and say, fine, we are doing it without you. >> i hear that element but my question stands. why is the president not speaking to the american people? their government, the federal
government, the government of the people, by and for the people, why isn't he speaking to the people? he may be speaking to you as members of congress, but don't the american people deserve to hear from their president? >> i think you'll start seeing come tomorrow if we are still in this situation. let's go back to 2013 versus today. >> why do they have to wait until tomorrow? >> tomorrow is when the federal government, the employees are not going back to work. in 2013, if you remember, what did president obama do? he shut down all of the national monuments and war memorial. we had to go out there as members of congress and move the barricades so world war ii veterans could see their memorial for the first time in their life. president trump allowed the mall to be open to the women's march could keep going on. 2013, president obama fenced all of that off because he was doing his best so the american people would feel the pain. what we are seeing here is you're seeing president trump be
a leader. >> president trump could come out and make that case himself. >> he is making a case. >> we have not heard from the president. >> the rest -- the president is not making a case at all. >> let me say something! >> we have to wrap this. >> we have to wrap this but for the sake of time i have to let congressman price finish with 30 seconds here. and then we will wrap it up. >> absolutely. the president is not only not exercising leadership with respect to the american people, he has made this worse. he has created this crisis among the dreamers so that he throws that on the fire and --. the solution to this is bipartisan. this needs to be a bipartisan budget agreement. this is the first time in american history one party has been in charge of all the three, house, senate, the presidency, and cannot keep the lights on! we need a bipartisan budget agreement to let us finish this year. we have kicked the can down the
road enough. >> this is not that. >> we have pledged ourselves to a process to work that out the next few weeks. >> thank you both for the conversation. >> thank you. appreciate it. >> today on "state of the union" with jake tapper, budget director mick mulvaney on the show and also rand paul and bernie sanders at 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. thousands of people walking, chant chanting and holding signs not only in the u.s. but other parts of the world. women's marches not just in america but beyond. we are taking to you london and what they are saying there is next. here's the story of green mountain coffee roasters sumatra reserve told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's go to sumatra. where's sumatra? good question. this is win. and that's win's goat, adi. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. making the coffee erupt with flavor. so we give farmers like win more plants. to grow more delicious coffee. that erupts with even more flavor. which helps provide for win's family.

it is pouring rain! people here are completely soaked. nonetheless, hundreds turned out to have their choices heard. we can hear the message they are sending is time is up. i was speaking with a woman earlier and she told me she is here because she was inspired by the marches that they saw across the united states yesterday and then through the weekend. we are hearing speeches from a number of people and members of parliament and human rights activists and the granddaughter of pancrest who led the suffrage a hundred years ago. i was speaking to people who were dressed as suffrage people. take a listen to what they had to say. they say nothing has changed. >> hundreds of years ago it was a massive land mark for women
and it feels like we have moved slowly since then and like we got the vote and we have been coasting but we just need to bring everyone together to have that last push and just to make sure that we kind of can live in a world where everyone is equal and women are seen on the same level as men which we are not quite there yet. >> yeah. some of the things they were fighting for like equal pay we still don't have so it's important to remind people that we haven't nel changed as much as we hoped by now. >> it's also just to honor what they did and the amazing women's rights activists and everything they did for us as well. >> reporter: organizers say they hope the energy you see behind me will carry forward into 2018 and we can see real change there. >> erin mclaughlin in a rainy london. thanks so much. political change is one of
the goals there of the women's march. women are shy of representing 20%. look at "time" magazine highlighting last year's participants in the women's march who are now running for office. amy is an activist and co-chair of women vote trump is with me to talk about the movement. first of all, your reaction to the fact that really at the end of the day last year's election some of the things president trump did that women do not support have propelled them into this movement to become part of the process now. >> i think it's good that women are involved. honestly, this is something i've said a long time. you look back at the pea party movement where i got my start in politics it was more women. it's not that i agree with every woman out there in her policy and you have to have good policy.
i don't think you should support a woman because she is a woman. i do think women should step up and lead because i think we are great at multitasks and we don't just sit around and talk about things like what congress does. we go out there and when we see something that needs to be done we get it done. so i think it's a good thing that women are stepping up and are engaging and i'm glad to see more women running for office. >> how would you, as a crump supporter, work with someone who vehemently does not appreciate donald trump? >> well, i think you have to find where you do agree, the issues you do agree on. that is one of the things i have to say. i'm sure i will upset a lot of people when say this, but these women are out there just opposing the man. they were opposing the man before he -- right when he took office. >> he gave them some ammunition and you have to admit there were a lot of things that happened during the campaign that made them feel disrespecteded and
disfranchises. >> the tea party was good at we got engaged. not over president obama. it wasn't him we were opposed to. we were opposed to his policies and bill clintobamacare specifi. you have to focus on possess and not the person. that person is going to eventually change whether he is a president for another three or seven years, he is going to change. i think it's good that women are engaged overall. >> president trump did tweet yesterday, he said beautiful weather all over our great country. a perfect day for all women to march. get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. lowest female unemployment in 18
years. so many of the voices out there are speaking to him saying, quit disrespecting us, quit holding us down. >> he is not -- he is not holding women down. >> but there are women who genuinely feel like that and we know there were a lot of issues that were being addressed yesterday. no doubt about it. but for him to tweet this and move it to the successes that he made -- >> he is trying to lift up women and all americans. you know what? not all women are focused on politics. they are focused on their families, on their children, on putting food on their table and gas in their cars and paying for their kiss to go to school. when his policies affect women and more women are in the work force and you get pay raises and bonuses that matters. all of the rhetoric at the end of the day doesn't matter when you're having policies that are positive and they impact people
and that is what really matters. that is what he is trying to say. >> these women, i would love to be out there marching but we are not welcome. if you're pro life, you're not welcome. they hate president trump. that's what this is about. so to sit there and say that it's about other things, it's not. >> there were -- a lot of about the me too movement. a lot about men in general and some of the sexual harassment and assault allegations that we have been talking about. this was about much more than president trump, no doubt about it. there is always politics in the mix of all of it so thank you so much. we appreciate it, amy. >> thank you. we are one day, seven hours, 32 minutes and a few seconds into the shutdown. to really show you the evidence of the stagnation of the negotiations here, president trump just retweeted himself
from yesterday. he didn't even bother to write a new attack. he said the following. didn't even through the trouble of coming up with a new line or a new blame game here. just retweeted what was said yesterday. hopefully, there is some progress that matters today and hopefully ending the shutdown soon. with this fall's mid terms on the horizon, can democrats continue tapping into the power of the black female voters? >> if you really -- really look at black women, we really have been holding this country together and been the unsung heroes of america for generations. >> absolutely. we took legendary and made it liberating. we took safe and made it daring. we took intelligent, and made it utterly irresistible. we took the most advanced e-class ever

in an attack on democrats in this ongoing shutdown. well, since that moment, the president has come up with a fresh tweet now. let me read it for you. if you've been watching this hour, although this is something the president has said in the past, just minutes ago, that same terminology and same verbiage was used by markwayne mullsclllen in suggest if this on we should 2091 option of a long-term budget. we are hearing the blame game continue. we will see as the negotiations continue throughout the day, if this shutdown can be ended
before work starts tomorrow morning for hundreds of thousands of federal workers who will not be paid until later. black women voters were pivotal for democrats in alabama and virginia. look at the numbers. 89% of black women backed doug jones in alabama and he is now senator. 91% went for ralph northam and you is now government. debbie will need black women's support this november but the women i spoke with in detroit explained earning their votes takes work and some said they would even be open to voting for the right republican in the future. if a person wants to come here and earn black women's support or having earned it. >> you can't, all of a sudden, want to be a supporter of black issues. where were you ten years ago? right. i need to know that you had -- you have some history that you have some understanding because with that history comes
understanding and empathy what is going on. >> and if you're able to connect with me. as an african-american woman i value hard work. i value hard work and i value loyalty. and if you can work hard and you can connect with my entire community, not just those of us that you think are important, not just those that you want to stand next with you and take a picture, but all of us. the working class. the unemployed. our men. our children. our seniors. all of us need to be important to you in order to get my support. >> with the candidates and what debbie, conversations like this is so important and important for candidates to make sure they are having those conversations with their constituency to make sure knowing that the issues that are important to them and making sure that they are having a diverse team to really represent the different ideals. >> is there a possibility you could vote for a republican? >> i could vote for a republican but it has to be a republican i felt was on the ground, boots on
the ground, doing the work, actually out in the community talking to african-americans, having empathy for our issues. >> and i work with side people and we are both making the same or they might be making more than me because they have been there for ten plus years and they are republicans. how could you be -- he is not for you? he is not working for you. he is not looking out for you. >> he says he is for the forgotten man an woman. >> no. >> for which one? i want to see. can you show them to me? >> you don't think that forgotten women looks like you? >> absolutely not. >> you don't think there might be a republican that might believe in the physical aspects of being a republican but also can relate to your issues as a black woman? >> if one someone gain my trust and i actually seen that they are really concerned about the issues that i have or the issues that are going on in my community, absolutely.
absolutely, you would. but right now, i'm standing firm on no. >> where are the black statewide candidates? there has never been a black woman elected governor in the history of the country. there have been only two black women elected to the u.s. senate. >> oftentimes, we are ignored. that is our history. and that is why i think we are speaking up and we are proving ourselves to be worthy and ready to lead. >> senator harris of california could run for president in 2020. i don't want to ask a cliche question is the country ready for a black woman as president, but i feel like i'm forced to. is the country ready to elect a black woman as president? >> i think it might be in the country's best interest based off of her qualifications and if you really look at black women, we have really been holding this country together and been the unsung heroes of america for
generations. >> absolutely. >> i think that african-american women, we have learned how to lift the democratic party. i think we still have to learn how to lift each other. >> all right. i'll be talking about the issues they raised now with simone sanders and maria cardona. that is on the other side of the break. stay with us. crohn's, you've tried to own us. but now it's our turn to take control with stelara® stelara® works differently for adults with moderately to severely active crohn's disease. studies showed relief and remission, with dosing every 8 weeks. stelara® may lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before or during treatment, always tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have flu-like symptoms or sores, have had cancer, or develop any new skin growths, or if anyone in your house needs or recently had a vaccine. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems, including headaches, seizures, confusion, and vision problems.

sanders. simone, let me start with the question that i put to the ladies in detroit. thank you to those ladies for speaking with me again. for obvious historical reasons were not black women senators, black women governors for the majority of the country's history but where are they now considering the strength of their vote that they bring to the democratic party? stacy abrams is running in georgia. where are the black statewide female candidates? you pose an excellent question for obvious reasons. there is a lack of black women that have been elected statewide. what i think we are going to see a wave and stacy abrams but i think we are seeing women gaining momentum in the state and -- was elected as first female mayor of charlotte, north carolina. the mayor of new orleans. the first african-american mayor of new orleans. i think it will take time but
you will see women who step up and decide to put their name on the ballot. i do believe that in the coming years we will see black women step up, put their names on the ballot for the statewide position. it's unheard of because frankly -- compared to black women -- opposites. >> let me come to you, maria. we are having a bit of an issue with audio with simone. based on the conversation at least and the percentages we saw in 2016, we saw in the most recent elections, democrats may not be losing black women's votes to republicans en masse but they may be losing them to dissatisfaction, right? they may just stay home. how do democrats prevent that loss? and is it possible that as we heard republicans could take some of those votes? >> sure, victory. those are great questions and
congratulations on your chat with these women. it was great. and i actually think that is an example of what democrats and republicans who want to get the black women vote or frankly the women vote and women of color vote is to sit down and talk to them, to sit down and make those personal connections. that is probably one of the most important things that we can do. and, frankly, the election in alabama was the one that really showed what can be done. doug jones did it, right? we never thought that a white man could get more black women vote than president obama did and that is exactly what happened and the way it happened is because he and his team did the work on the ground. he had a history with the african-american community. he had a history of reaching out to these women and as we heard with the very eloquent women you spoke to that is what matters most. you have to have a history. you have to have a connection. you can't just show up two days
before the election and pretend that you can earn that vote. and i think that that goes with most voters in this country, especially with most women of color and my latino brothers and sisters feel the very same way and i love ma black women are blazing the trail in terms of making sure that you are the one that has the power to represent your community, that your vote actually really does matter. and that politicians, both democrats and republicans, if they put the work into it, they can earn that vote. >> maria. thank you both. quick break we'll be right back. . theratears® unique electrolyte formula, corrects the salt imbalance that causes dry eye. so your eyes will thank you. more than eye drops, dry eye therapy. theratears®.
